Intro: Synaptic Fabric
For PJ's Mom: the tedious process of making the fabric for Synaptic, as seen in my avatar.
I used black light reactive rip-stop nylon, ribbons, yarn, thread and string.
You can use anything that supports your design idea or happen to have on hand.
Take your yardage and start sewing a zig-zag stitch.
Add ribbons, yarn string and change your stitch thread color.
Overlap, overlay over-do.
Make all of your yardage for the final garment.
Cut out your pattern.
Pin right sides together and with a straight stitch sew the garment together.
Use an iron to press seams open.
My fabric would melt so I finger pressed the seams open.
Sew more, yes more, ribbons, threads and yarns over the seams.
Make sure the seams are pressed open as you sew over them.
More more more.........
The fabric should be textured, layered and puckered.
Finish your garment.
Where needed match lining, facings and inter-facings.
